Like you, we are continuing to closely follow the news. We hope all of our athletes and their families are safe.
After consultation with — and guidance from — the permitting authorities, it was decided to cancel these events for this year:
Wellfleet Triathlon (May 30)
Hyannis Triathlon 1 (June 13)
SOS Cape Cod Triathlon (June 20)
Falmouth Triathlon (July 12)
Hyannis Triathlon 2 (September 12)
Athletes have received instructions. If you are a registered athlete and did not receive the notice, please email email@example.com.
Our 2020 Sea to Summit Triathlon was able to be held as scheduled on July 25 — following current health protocols and safety precautions — and was a huge success.
For our other planned 2020 event, Gut Check Triathlon on October 17, the permitting authorities have agreed with us that it would not be prudent to make an immediate decision — but it does make sense that we plan for any contingency. If this event is held, we will introduce health precautions as standard procedures.
One of the oddities of the event production business is that significant costs are paid long before race weekend…as much as a year in advance. Yet while we realize there is some financial hardship for our company, which may continue for some time, we will work diligently to provide options to every one of our athletes that reflect the value of their registration purchases.
Kathleen, Andy and the NEEE gang wish you to know that, for quite a few years now, the displays of loyalty and affection by those in our triathlete community have changed our own lives dramatically. We will always return this trust to everyone who participates in our events.
We hope you stay safe (and keep training), and we very much look forward to seeing you later this summer or next year!
